So, here’s a super fun Jump Rope trick for you called the 360° turn. There are many ways to do this and make it your own, but in my latest YouTube video, I will show you the basics on how to get your turn down!

360° Turn

  1. Start out by jumping.
  2. To make the first turn start out by swinging the rope to your right as you turn to the left.
  3. Once you are facing in the opposite direction, bring the rope backwards over your head.
  4. You may want to jump a few times here backwards so you don’t go into the turn too fast. If you go right into the turn too fast you may get dizzy. Save this for when you get more skilled.
  5. Now it’s time to turn back to where you started. This part can be tricky. To get the rope swinging forward again, you will have to stop it in the up position and force it downwards in a sweeping motion as you turn around.
  6. Then start over again.
  7. Now let’s reverse it.
  8. To make the second turn start out by swinging the rope to your left as you turn to the right.
  9. Once you are facing in the opposite direction, bring the rope backwards over your head.
  10. You may want to jump a few times here backwards so you don’t go into the turn too fast. If you go right into the turn too fast you may get dizzy.  Save this for when you get more skilled.
  11. Now it’s time to turn back to where you started. Remember when the rope is in the up position bring it downwards in a sweeping motion as you turn around.
  12. That’s it. Let’s practice a little more!

I hope you were able to follow along and are ready to give this a try. Keep practicing in both directions and incorporate it with your other jump rope moves for a cool sequence. I love teaching you these tricks and hope you like and subscribe. I have some other new ones coming up I can’t wait to teach you!
